Finnish Navy receives first Hamina-class modernized missile boat

The Finnish Navy received the first modernized Hamina-class missile boat, which underwent a major overhaul and modernization at the Patria enterprise. The remaining three boats of this type should undergo modernization before the end of 2021. It is reported by Navy Recognition.


Four Hamina-class missile boats make up the core of the Finnish Navy. They are deployed at the naval base in Upinniemi, 15 km southwest of Helsinki. As a result of modernization, boats built in the late 1990s and early 2000s should last until the 2030s.

Details of the modernization were not disclosed, but it is known that during the upgrade the boats receive funds to combat submarines and new opportunities for defense. In particular, torpedo launchers Torpedsystem 47 (Tp 47) developed by the Swedish Saab Dynamics and 40-mm naval artillery mounts Bofors-40 Mk.4 will be placed on board. from BAE Systems.

Hamina type boats are the fourth generation of Finnish missile boats. All boats are named after the Finnish coastal cities. The first boat was ordered in December 1996, and the fourth became part of the Finnish fleet June 2006 year.

The hull is made of aluminum, and the superstructure is made of reinforced composite carbon fiber. The shape of the vessel was designed specifically to reduce radar visibility. Metal parts are covered with absorbent material.

The main power plant of Hamina-type missile boats includes two 16V 538 TV93 diesel engines (total power 7550 hp) of the German company MTU, each of which works through a gear transmission to two reversible water-jet propulsion engines. This allows you to use boats in shallow water, as well as maneuver in narrow straits.

The armament of these missile boats is based on four container launchers of anti-ship missiles MTO-85M. This missile was created by the Swedish company SAAB on the basis of the RBS-15 MK2 anti-ship missiles. The main difference from the prototype is an improved turbojet engine, thanks to which the maximum firing range is increased by 50 percent - up to 150 km.

In addition, the boat’s armament initially includes a Bofors 57-mm gun mount, a vertical launch for eight Umkonto guided short-range anti-aircraft missiles from the South African Denel company, and two 12,7-mm machine guns. The solution to anti-sabotage tasks is provided by the nine-barrel Elma grenade launcher.

The radio-electronic equipment includes a TRS-3D / I6-ES three-coordinate detection and tracking system for airborne and surface targets (maximum detection range of air targets 90 km), as well as a Zeros 200 firing system with radar, television, thermal imaging stations and a laser rangefinder. The boat is also equipped with a podkilnaya and lowered hydroacoustic stations.

Processing data from the specified radio equipment or external sources, and issuing target designation systems weapons implemented using the automated control system ANCS-2000.

    Small but "toothy". For the Finns, such boats are just what they need, a kind of "golden mean."

          The boats are equipped with two diesel engines MTU 16V 538 TB93 (Germany) with a capacity of 5520 kW, each of which is connected via a drive to reversing jet engines Rolls Royce Kamewa 90SII. This solution allows them to work in very shallow water and accelerate, slow down and turn with greater maneuverability than ships equipped with screw propulsors.

      Yeah, I saw them at the Finnish Navy base in Turku.
      Fortunately, the base is not fenced off from the civilian territory of the port.
      By seven in the morning conscripts arrived — sailors in their cars and officers. Sailor takes out form from the trunk, changes clothes.
      Then the general construction, the raising of the flag, the Finnish anthem sounds. Then everyone scatters in boxes and serves the fatherland to eighteen zero zero.
      Further, everything happens in the reverse order ...
      Defenders of Finnish statehood, damn it ...

        Oh well, not an example of pimpled nerds-conscripts from a neighboring country. Guys defend their homeland calmly, thoroughly and professionally. And they don’t pace the parade ground for hours. Unlike our huge piece of iron, who spend their ship life between the pier and the factory dock, they constantly drive their equipment.

          And where did you see the current boatmen "pacing the parade ground for hours"? About the big "pieces of iron" where did they get it? from the dashing 90s or what? Well, then it’s not that fuel, but also “pacing” along the deck was not always enough. I had to transplant from one to one. Navigators drove like that to hiccups.
          You criticize colleague Paul Siebert. And for several days I had to observe a similar picture in the German RCA division (Naval Forces Rostock). For 12 boats in the division for the night there were 4 people: the duty officer, the guard (?) On survivability, the mechanic and the messenger-messenger. -- ALL!!! Once every 1 hours they made a round of the RCA, and then drank coffee in the cockpit of the officer on duty ... To my question: why so few l / s remain in the division? Got an answer: why more? - not a war. Why pull on the British flag? (About German - fascist - mind you, they didn’t mention!) And what if there’s a fire or water? - I did not let up. Otto (starley) looked at me with undisguised amazement: - And where do they come from? Everything is checked, closed, there is nobody on board - there is no one to indulge in matches (it shocked me the most!) ... And then it began to come to me that almost all the nonsense we had was the fault of the “extra squad”. Inspect the facility, bring it to the original, turn off the power, check outboards - and everything will be "abgemacht"! And these were the "democratic" Germans of the former GDR ...
          So, you need to reasonably and thoroughly, without excesses brought to a breathtaking height!
          AHA.

            Forgot what it looks like? The slingshot mentioned here in Kronstadt, Baltiysk is unforgettable. There are also pieces of iron, where the service is performed never once from the pier without departing. Remember the Baltic Fleet flagship?
            P.S. Siebert's colleague has a strange neglect of Finnish sailors. There were no grounds for this in the past and are not planned in the future.

    That's cool! Moreover, it is impressive.
    According to the comments, the bow artillery system looks cumbersome and the wheelhouse looks like in tow.
    Our projectors prefer the scheme - steel body, AMg superstructure. Or AMg / AMg.

      Colleague gas cutter, if I'm not mistaken, you ship? Perhaps you or someone from your colleagues knows whether our “Gadfly” (I once watched them on TV) or “karakurt” (I don’t know others) are worse than Finns or equivalent?
      Here on the site they constantly say that the engines for the fleet do not. True, sometimes encouraging messages about engines and the fleet flash, but most say: "everything is lost. But what is the reality?

      The son looked at the site several times: we do not know about the present day of the ground forces and are very behind. Perhaps with the fleet as well?

        Completely in the hole repeat. Engines per year in a teaspoon.
        Yes, I'm a shipbuilder. We are building both military and civilian vessels.
        I did not have the honor to work at Gadfly, I participated in Karakurt.
        The plan is worse than Finov or equivalent ...
        If we compare ships from this article with 22800, then this is a slightly different ship plan.
        Purely in terms of armament, we have eight missiles in the mine, (again, what kind of warheads you put on them ...) for artillery, we have AK176 in the nose. And this is not enough. At the stern is air defense "Shell M". On the head AK630 stood (which is also a very interesting car)
        If we discard the problems with the motors, then we advantageously differ in fact from our comrades from Finland.

Yes, SO SO "not ours." And how will Finland’s relations with Sweden and, especially, with South Africa develop in 10-20 years - can anyone predict?

    On the photo in the Hamina news before the upgrade. Here is a new one:





    As you can see, the 57-mm gun is replaced by a 40-mm gun, due to which the displacement for torpedoes is freed. The doors for loading rockets also changed slightly, and the mini-mast at the back disappeared.

    Where torpedo launchers are located is still unclear.

    There is an excellent boat in the brow: 300 tons of displacement - 4 not weak anti-ship missiles; rapid-fire gun, short-range air defense systems, built-in and towed hydroacoustic stations, torpedoes, mines, jamming installations, machine guns, radar and fire detection and control radar, inflatable boat in the hangar!

    For comparison, in the RTOs of project 22800 with 800 tons of displacement, the PLO is completely absent. (I’ll keep silent about the Buyans.)

    The Finns removed the 57-mm gun plan to reuse on the designed corvettes.

      22800 was not created for these purposes. His main task is to go to the specified area and fire a salvo of eight missiles. Well, then ... How the card will fall.

    Those. 25 years ago, already made inconspicuous boats and used composite alloys ... Fins, Karl ...

      You will laugh. Our factory has a workshop "New".
      Thirty-five years ago, he still spied lifeboats solely from composite. Here you have Fina Karl! ..
      The same mast on the 22800-composite. Who did- "Novelty."
      Therefore, it is not necessary to crap domestic shipbuilding how much in vain. The people do not know much.

        With boats you did not surprise me. My brother and I made a boat from fiberglass and epoxy in childhood. Immediately it was about a full-fledged missile boat.

          Well then, I’ll surprise you. Fiberglass missile boat!?. This is utopia !. Do you have an idea about the construction of the ship as a whole?
          Why is there a lot of iron in particular?
          By the way, I strongly doubt that you and your brother built the very boat that you did at our factory. For "tumblers" I generally keep quiet.

        His people do not shit. He is bullied by those who reform and optimize him endlessly, while forgetting to feed him as expected.

        Lack of engines, you say? ... And 20-25 years ago, THEM, WHICH NAVIRHA, it was not clear that the engines should and should be OWN.
        And under Serdyukov for 4 years there was no admission to flight schools - when will the winged ones say that we have no one to fly?

        I myself have nothing to do with ships, I am not a river-sea, I am air-ground. wink But when our fleet was shown on television in the program "Serving the Soviet Union!" and, moreover, in our films of the 80s - the soul rejoiced. It is incomprehensible, but beautiful and powerful.

          I don’t even know what to say about this. Most likely, I agree.

      We have no approximate analogues. This is actually a universal mini-corvette.

    Cooperation may be good, but only in the Union no one could have thought 40 years ago that Antonov Design Bureau and Zaporizhzhya Engine-Building Plant would someday be "not ours." Yes, SO SO "not ours." And how will Finland’s relations with Sweden and, especially, with South Africa develop in 10-20 years - can anyone predict?

    No ... For me - in defense matters - no cooperation! Everything to the last nut!

    Everything is simpler, Alexey! Finland is not Russia, although it was once part of it. There will be problems with Sweden or South Africa - they will buy from someone else. No one will impose sanctions in this direction against it.
    And no cooperation .... All this is complicated. The USSR during the Iron Curtain tried to do everything, but even he did not succeed in everything. In Russia - even more so. And in relation to Finland, it’s not worth talking about.
